It's been a very, very long time since a big house with a sweeping front porch at 2104 Kenwood Parkway in south Minneapolis was prominently featured in the opening credits of the 1970s sitcom, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," but some of you out there might remember.
That house is now on the market for $2.895 million and is listed with the Barry Berg Group/Coldwell Banker Burnet.
The lengthy listing makes no mention of the home's fame. There was a time when the house was simply known as the "Mary Tyler Moore house," but the interior today bears little resemblance to the stage set where MTM's friend, Rhoda, had an apartment on the turreted third floor.
That turret is still there in all its Victorian glory, but the 1900s-era house has been significantly renovated and is now a single-family house with 9,500 square feet, including seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The owners of the property are Gregory Macfarlane and Eva Wai Oi Mui, according to Hennepin County tax records. They paid $2.8 million for the house in 2007.
